I found the service to be good here as long as you tipped, every time you wanted something. If you're looking for a romantic vacation this is not the place. The only thing that made it tolerable was that I was with a great group of people. The food was not that good and the rooms were AWFUL! Two beds... More

This was our 2nd time here, as we loved it so much last year! This year was somewhat different though. Check in was seamless, our room was not ready, as we expected (we were earlier than check in time). Our room was in the 5000 building, which I like more than the 4000 from last year. Although we didn’t have... More

Arrived 24th March and stayed for 2 weeks! Had a fantastic time. Staff are amazing, food is plentiful, rooms are huge and hotel is literally 5 mins transfer which is just what your need after a 10 hour flight. Really enjoyed the Riu and would recommend. I have been to Ochio Rios before, and far prefer Montego Bay. Some reviews... More

This was a work trip. My prior trips to the island included Sandals Royal Caribbean, and Sandals Dunns river falls. I came here expecting this to be a downgrade. Checkin So we got there and were in process of checking in when bellboy took our bags off to the side and said they would bring them to our room. The... More

We stayed at the Riu for six days in early April. I go back to my traveling mantra "you get what you pay for". This trip was booked last minute as we had already been to Jamaica once this winter, but the first trip it rained every day (in January). This time the weather was perfect with only one shower...

Yup, every building is painted a light purple so I thought there must have been a sale on the paint. Anyway, you're not there to stare at the walls! The hotel complex is fairly compact where the large pool is at the centre with the entertainment area, lobby bar and lobby are on one side, the dining area on the... More

Was not expecting much from the Riu all inclusive experience and I was right on point. Marginal food, cheap drinks in plastic cups, large crowds with few guest services, and "specialty" restaurants that were not so special. A friend had booked at this resort so we were going along to vacation with a group of friends. Overall we had a... More

Just returned from Riu Montego Bay (April 5-12). The resort is very well kept and maintained and clean the staff work really hard daily to keep it beautiful. The food was pretty good there was always something to eat and each night the buffet have themed nights. The down side is having to make reservations for the other restaurants they... More
